Welcome to another episode of conversations with Coleman.

My guest today is Jesse Morton. Jesse has an incredibly interesting life story. He was born in America, converted to Islam as a young adult, became radicalised and devoted his life to doing everything he could to help Al Qaeda from America, including creating the very first English language jihadist propaganda magazine, which later famous magazines like Inspire and Dubuque would be modelled after.
So after a long journey away from Islamism, he now runs an organization called Parallel Networks, which works on Deradicalizing people who are involved in extremist political and religious movements of all kinds.
I enjoyed this one a lot, and I hope you do too.

When we try to get healthier, we tend to think of the food we have to hold ourselves back from instead of focusing on giving ourselves more of what our bodies need. Noom uses a psychology-based approach to help us change our mindset for good because building better habits means a more sustainable journey to better health. Noom teaches you about food and the psychology of eating. It helps you better understand your cravings, not seeing any food as “bad” food. By customizing a program for you based on your personal goals, Noom fits into your life, on your terms. Start building better habits for healthier, long-term results.

Spectacular episode Coleman. An exemplar of why free speech is so vital, and why positive encouragement at the right time for teens and especially young men is so important.

The talk about Incel had me considering the similarity to Volcel (MGTOW) groups and what separates the 2. Also interesting that both groups are represented by the media as opposed to women, and so seen as bigoted (which to a level, I tend to agree), but how the response is such a lack of compassion to the individuals that would gravitate to such group extremes.

Esp with the hypocrisy of such things like Women's Studies that do their own advertising of the same types of bigotry, but because they are seen as historically prejudiced against, get a social pass for their hypocrisy.

Absolutely fascinating. I have never really understood how a secular Western leftist becomes enamored of radical Islam, which is none of those. I would have liked to see more discussion of that. Amazing conversation regardless.

*The black pill isn't even an ideology, It's just the truth about being a physically unattractive man. If you ever take the time to actually hear these guys out, you'll see that they're not radical at all, they're just a bunch of ugly dudes who are tired of being gaslighted and told that their lack of success with women has nothing to do with their looks. Everybody knows men care about a woman's looks and are often accused of being shallow, but the truth is that women are EXACTLY the same, despite their insistence that they care more about personality, sense of humour etc.*

*Watching black pill content taught me a serious lesson in kindness. I now go out of my way to be kind to ugly men, because trust me - they're going through it, and nobody seems to give a fuck about them at all. It's funny how people seem to find sympathy for all sorts of victim groups these days, whether they're genuine victims or not, but somehow we can't find it in our hearts to sympathise with a man who half the planet perceives as visually disgusting. I mean jesus, can you imagine what that's like?*

The first half was interesting the second not so much as I’m not convinced that a generic one size fits all approach would work. He didn’t say much about the theological dimension in his own radicalism and how he relates to any religious belief now. Nor indeed did I sense much remorse for his actions. The main blame for radicalism seems to be the internet- is it really that simple?

Just because he is all "I was miguided" does not make it ok that he is free and prospering to me. He is by his own account partly responible for a lot of death and suffering and many ppl doing far less is rotting in jail. grrrr.

Interesting episode but I cant really believe he just said there is no evidence for People radicalizing online. One Google search seems to disprove this.
